162 Songs, 12 Hours 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This 162-track collection of outtakes, remixes and live cuts from the deluxe reissues of Michael Jackson’s unparalleled discography doubles as proof of his music’s timelessness. The Off the Wall-era demo of “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” shows how his effervescent excitement helped that track become a post-disco inferno; the slinky “Monster”, which features hard-as-nails MC 50 Cent, beams Jackson into the 21st century, and Nero’s explosive remix of the Bad track “Speed Demon” places Jackson’s growl in a glittery EDM context.

Hard to find songs

While not containing any new material this collection does have remixes and rare songs a plenty. For example 'Shout' was only available on the European CD single for 'Cry' in 2001. Also the full version of 'Carousel' of which only a short snippet was included in 2008's 'Thriller 25' is present here as well as the Japanese only bonus song from the same album, 'Got The hots' which was also released on certain editions of 2009's 'King of Pop' compliation. Remixes that have never seen the light of day since their original vinyl release are also present here. Some ultra rare remixes off 1997's 'Ghosts' European VHS boxset's included CD, the gold disc 'Limited Edition Minimax CD' are also included. If those aren't rare enough on this collection are a number of remixes from the legendary unreleased 'Smile' CD single of which only a handful of copies were made. This Ultimate Fan Extras Collection is a great source for some of the rarer songs of The King of Pop. No longer do fans have to scour the internet for these songs. My only complaint would be that this compliation wasn't promoted with at least one new song from the Jackson catalogue and that the complete set of Michael Jackson's official remixes weren't included. Overall a very impressive collection, meant for mainly diehard fans and remix enthusiasts. A tantalising teaser to more MJ material for 2013? This listener hopes so!!:)
